Seeking public openness

first_imgFour of the teams that took part in a hackathon at the MIT Media Lab last weekend will go on to present their practical solutions for reducing institutional corruption to a conference at Harvard Law School later this spring.“You did an extraordinary amount of work and solved an extraordinary amount of problems since Friday,” said Bill English, research director for the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics. The hackathon was organized by center and the MIT Center for Civic Media with the goal of turning academic ideas into tangible solutions to problems that lead institutions astray from their original missions.A team called Unearth won the competition, second place went to WeCott, and CampaignCon and Open Think Tank tied for third. The teams of volunteers ― who included students, retirees, members of the government, legal, and medical communities ― varied in size from two to about 20 people.Scholars, researchers, news reporters, and activists have contributed to the Safra Center’s five-year project under the direction of Lawrence Lessig, studying, mapping, and looking for solutions to the institutional corruption that takes place in all corners of the globe. The project will culminate with a two-day conference, “Ending Institutional Corruption,” at Harvard Law School in May. Judges initially planned to let top three teams present their proposals at the conference, but the ideas were so strong that the organizers decided to let all four teams give at least an abbreviated report.“Part of our effort is to take research from the ivory tower and take it to the real world and have an impact,” English said. “Talking to my colleagues, they have been blown away by how productive these 2½ days have been.”Participants started the weekend brainstorming ideas, then broke into groups to work on solutions, said Heidi H. Carrell, coordinator for the Lab at the MIT Center. “We want real, usable tools that will have an impact,” Carrell said. “That’s part of the judging criteria.”Projects addressed issues in government and law; medicine and public health; finance and economics; or nonprofits and academia. Teams within each category worked on their own solutions.In the medicine and public health field, Christopher Robertson’s Unearth team developed an easy way to show doctors — who often look more critically at a report if they know it was funded by a pharmaceutical company — how research studies for new pharmaceuticals are funded. Research projects bankrolled by the National Institutes of Health or independent sources can be expected to be more objective in their conclusions than industry-funded studies, he said, but funding sources and information on whether an author received additional pay from a company can be buried in fine print. Unearth’s program is already available through the Chrome store and can easily be downloaded by doctors and hospital.WeCott created a social platform to help the public boycotts businesses indulging in unfair pricing, poor worker treatment, or other questionable practices. “One of the tools we have to fight corporate corruption is boycotting,” said team member Joseph Schiavone. “But there are certain barriers to boycotting to keep it from being a widely used tool,” including lack of awareness that a problem exists, and not seeing results from a boycott. WeCott’s website shows which companies the public is boycotting, and why.Paul Jorgensen’s CampaignCon focused on tracking federal campaign finance data so the public can see how corporations donate to politicians through a web of private contributions, corporations, and political action committees. The service retrieves weekly updates from FEC reporting and looks for shifts in donations.Brooke Williams led team Open Think Tank, which worked on the website thinktankdonors.org and an app that searches for and explains foreign governments’ donations to nonprofit and academic think tanks.The hackathon was the brainchild of Williams, an investigative reporter who is now a fellow at public narrative at Harvard.“The best way to help my colleagues was to organize a hackathon where we could bring technologists — and not just technologists but those who want to make a difference — together with amazing thinkers,” Williams said.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s hosts Math Week events

first_imgThis week, the Saint Mary’s math club is hosting a series of events to show Belles they can count on one another.Math Week consists of math-based events centered on creating shared experiences between Belles — with a mathematical twist, Pi Mu Epsilon math society president and senior Arianna Iannuzzi said in an email.The conclusion of the week’s events consists of math professor Cheryl Periton’s workshop, “Counting Table/Counters Workshop,” on how people performed large computations before the invention of the calculator Thursday night, free bagels and coffee Friday morning and the rescheduled math relay race Monday night. Iannuzzi said she participates in Math Week events due to the sense of community she feels throughout the week and the recognition it provides for women of the past.“I personally take note of Math Week because it is a time for me to celebrate what I love with the people that I love,” Iannuzzi said. “It is a great feeling being near people who appreciate what you appreciate. I also take part in it because I recognize the struggle women in math have had to face throughout history. I am glad that I am so privileged to be at a beautiful college and supported in my study of mathematics, but I recognize this, for a long time, was not the case. I think that even if people don’t consider themselves a ‘math person,’ they should participate in the week because this week is a celebration for the progress women and society have made. I think there is more to learn from the mathematical community than just math.”Iannuzzi said the week has occured every year she has attended Saint Mary’s, and she attributes its longevity to the students and faculty of the math department.“I think what keeps this tradition going is the amazing faculty and students the math department has,” she said. “We make sure to tell and inform and include the younger students in our events so that they will carry on the tradition once we are gone. I am aware of how beneficial this department has been for me and my future, and I want to make sure that these traditions continue so that younger women feel this same way.”Junior math major Madeleine Corcoran said in an email that Math Week is the culmination of positive experiences she had with those in the department.“Saint Mary’s math department is a very supportive community,” she said. “The professors take so much time to work with each of us and really form relationships with one another. Math can be very challenging, so it tends to bond us together. Math Week truly brings the math community together in addition to other students on campus, which makes the week fun.”Students do not need to pursue a major in math to be a part of the club or partake in the week’s activities. Iannuzzi said she encourages everyone to join.“I would just add that we really encourage all people and majors to be involved in math club and Math Week,” she said. “It is my hope that people never feel as if they have to study math to be involved. We are really just a club that looks to promote and celebrate the accomplishments of the strong women around us.”Tags: Math, Math Week, Pi Mu Epsilon, SMC Math Clublast_img read more

How accountability can help you succeed

first_imgAnyone who’s ever decided to start a weight-loss program on January 1st of any year, knows it’s not easy to drop those extra pounds. Heck, it’s not even easy to regularly use that new gym membership once February arrives. If you’re tackling a personal or professional challenge, it helps to be held accountable by a friend or colleague that you trust. Here are 4 benefits of accountability you should think about before you try to achieve that goal all alone.Accountability battles distraction: There will always be something that tries to steal your time away. When it comes to your personal life, it’s easy to get distracted by everything going on around you. When a goal is a difficult one, you have to do what it takes to keep yourself focused and engaged. If you know someone is going to call you out on your progress, it’s a lot easier to keep your eyes on the prize.Accountability provides a cheering section: Anyone you’re comfortable enough with to let them hold you accountable, is obviously someone who cares enough about you to support you in your journey to achieving your goal. Some days you don’t want to do the things you need to do (like go to the gym), but lucky for you, there’s someone in your corner. Look for your accountability partner to provide motivation when you can’t provide your own. You say “I can’t,” but they’ll be there to say “Yes, you can.”Accountability ends dumb excuses: It’s almost comical how many times we create an excuse to not do something, and feel it justifies our decision. “I’ve got a free afternoon tomorrow, so I’ll do it then instead” turns into “I really need to do this instead of that,” and your task keeps getting pushed back further and further. When someone is holding you accountable, they’ll say things like “That’s a stupid excuse.” When someone’s that honest and upfront with you, it helps you get stuff done.Accountability provides more brain power: When you’re trying to tackle a challenge, you can sometimes get lost on your journey. Having someone to bounce ideas off of and help you navigate the difficult times, can be a HUGE benefit. Don’t try to go it alone when there’s no reason to. 34SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
